Tiwa Savage was already turning heads with her music — a deft fusion of Afrobeat with pop, R&B and hip-hop sounds — for years when she was handpicked by Beyoncé to appear on The Gift, the soundtrack album for the 2019 remake of The Lion King.

Megan Thee Stallion turned the Saturday Night Live stage into the perfect platform for political discourse during the show’s 46th season premiere hosted by Chris Rock.

In her SNL debut, Megan performed her March release “Savage” alongside four dancers in a room enveloped by the words “Protect Black Women.” The words disappear from sight into darkness midway through the song as gunshots take over the chorus, the black screen replaced by bullet holes.

Megan Thee Stallion Performs ‘Savage,’ Says ‘Protect Our Black Women’ During Powerful SNL Debut

Megan Thee Stallion is using her hot-girl platform to slam racial injustices.

During the season 46 premiere of Saturday Night Live hosted by Chris Rock this weekend, the “WAP” rapper, 25, performed her hit remix “Savage” (featuring Beyoncé’s vocals) and shared a powerful message for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Toward the end of the first song, gunshot effects took shape on the set behind Megan and her four backup dancers, with soundbites from historical and recent activists heard in the background. One quote called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron for his decision made last month in the case of Breonna Taylor.
